Announcements


Dr. Shannon Lundeen has resigned as Director of the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women, effective June 5, 2015. Dr. Lundeen came to Case Western Reserve in 2013, and went on to contribute significantly to the Center’s work during its move to the new Tinkham Veale University Center (TVUC) and celebration of its 10th year. The Center’s new home included a fully equipped lactation room, while a Town Hall event featuring Gloria Steinem highlighted the anniversary celebrations.


During Dr. Lundeen’s tenure, the Center added new programs such as Moms Offering Moms Support (MOMS) and the Women of Color Collaborative – developed in partnership with the Office of Multicultural Affairs. Those who served the Center and benefited from its programs all value her commitment, creativity and accomplishments, and offer best wishes as she pursues new professional opportunities.


Meanwhile, the university immediately will begin a search for a new director to continue and expand the Center’s initiatives involving leadership development, women’s health, gender equity, the advancement of women in STEM fields, and prevention of domestic violence.


Questions about the Flora Stone Mather Center’s ongoing activities can be directed to Susan Freimark, the Center’s Associate Director for Faculty Leadership Programs at Susan.Freimark@case.edu. Updates regarding the search process will be posted on the Center’s homepage as appropriate.
